Hola  Familia,

Como Estan? Espero que todo esta bien con todos. Espero que todos están disfrutando sus estudios y trabajos.  Estamos muy bein aqui en el Guabo. Estamos muy felices por que Sabado tuvimos el bautismo de Hermano G y ayer tuvimos su confirmacion. Estoy muy agradecido por eso. Muchisismo Gracias por todo lo que hacen para mi. Gracias por sus correos. 

This week we had a pretty great week. We are starting to see a lot more success. We were super happy this week because we were able to find some families that are really amazing to teach. We found a family nemed the G M family. It is a mom with here daughter who is 22 and here son who is almost 17. They are really awesome and really excited to get baptized. They loved church yesterday which is super awesome. We also found some other great families and we are that they keep progressing until baptism. I know that they will be able to. This week we are hoping to find a lot more families and be able to contact the family members of the investigators that we have to find more people to teach. We were super happy to have 11 investigators in church so we have people to work with. It was really amazing as we were able to see the lords hand in everyone of them coming to church. I know that we definately did not bring 11 to church, Heavenly Father brought them because there were many that we could not  make it to see them in time to bring them to church and they just showed up. It was amazing. I know that Heavenly Father is always there to help us and that this work is of the Lord. I am so grateful for this work. 

G's baptism went well. He is pretty awesome. He is super funny. He took us around in his truck to go on visitis yesterday after church. It was awesome! He wants to be a missionary. We are so grateful for him and I have learned from him that faith is what is important and that we should not judge people because when we found him he did not want anything but after teaching for a little bit he accepted everything. It was awesome. I am so grateful for that lesson.                              

Mom thank you for your example, you were a great young womens president, you really taught me how to love a calling and work and worry your hardest in the calling.  Dad thank you so much for your example as well. I love you all so much. 
Well I hope you all have a wonderful wonderful week.  I know that you all will be great. I love you all so much!!!!

Another week in Guabo!!

Hola Familia, 

Lo siento que no tengo mucho tiempo hoy a causa de que vamos a cambiar de casa porque no hay espacio en nuestro casa y tengo que hacer los trabajos del contracto de la nueva casa. (Ben says that he didn't have much time to write because he was working on contracts for a new place to live because the old one was too small.)

Thank you so much for all that you all do for me. My companion and I are excited to be working here. We are very excited to have a baptism this saturday. G V is getting baptized on Saturday at 6. We are super excited. We are still working with the family but hopefully they will follow the example fo their Dad. 

This week we were so happy to have a family of inactives in church who have a daughter that is nine that is not a member. She is also going to get baptized on the 6th of september. Her whole family was there. We were very happy about that. We are trying to help the branch become a ward. They have been a branch for a long time because they need sacerdocio. We are working to try to active the priesthood to help them reach their goals of a ward.

We always walk here. There are not really any bus systems here but it is all good. Walking is good. We have success talking to people as we walk so that is great. I am so grateful for the chance I have to be here. Thank you so much for your great emails. I love you all so much. Have a wonderful week!! Have a great great week in School!!! It should be awesome. Don`t worry too much! Ali and totally forgot to wish you a happy birthday last month!! I am so so so sorry. I hope you had a wonderful day!! I love you all!!

El Guabo week 2!!

Hola Familia,
 Todo esta bien aqui en Ecuador. Estamos muy felices trabajando aqui en el Guabo. It is a great little town. It is a pretty small town. It is all surrounded by bannana plantations as well as Pasaje. It is pretty close to pasaje. They are pretty similiar just Guabo is a lot smaller. It is pretty awesome. We do live with another companionship. They are pretty great. We are in the Zone El Oro en Machala so we got travel there for meetings! My new companion is pretty awesome. I am so grateful for the oppurtunity that I have to learn from a new missionary that always brings new ideas and new excitement to the mission. I am so grateful for all that I have learned in these past few months. I really don`t know why my companions kept being changed or why I got changed but I know that it comes from our father in heaven. I was excited to keep learning and working in Loja but I am so grateful for the change and the chance I get to learn and to study and really focus on our sector. It is a great chance. I love the mission and all that we learn here in the mission. There are hard days and great days but everyday is a learning day. I guess that is how it has to be here in this world. My favorite talk is Come What May and Love It by Elder Wirthlin. I really do love my new sector and companion. We have a great time. He loves sports as much as I do!! It is a great time! I am so glad that all you are well. I hope that all have a calm and great week. Probably never is calm but that is all good. Thank you all for all that you do for me. For all of your love and support. Thank you so much for the fotos and the testimony Mom. When we slept in the temple they one of the workers gave it to me. It was pretty awesome. Thank you so much Ali for your efforts there!! I love you all so much. Have a wonderful wonderful week. We have and investigator named G V. He is pretty great. he has come to church two times now and is super excited to get baptised. He even took us out to eat cow foot soup! Excelente!!!!!!!! bueno mas o menos! Well that is pretty much all that went down this week. This week we are ready to explode El Guabo!! Gracias por todo. Les Amo!!

A Move to El Guabo!!

Hola Familia, 
Sounds like everything is going great there. That sounds like it should be a great week there at the cabin. That sounds relaxing. These week has been a pretty great week. Last monday after I wrote to you guys I got transfered!!!! I am now in a little town called Guabo! I am training a brand new missionary!!! His name is Elder Willes! He is from Portland, Oregon! He loves bball!! Excelente!! I am so happy to be here working in  Guabo. It is a branch. We are opening up a new sector! There have only been 2 missionaries here before. Now we are 4. This week we had some success. We had two people come to church. We had G V quien tiene una fecha bautismal para el 30 de Agosto. He is like 50 and his wife is member from a long time ago but super inactive! He really loved church. We should have a good week of lessons with. I am so grateful for the chance I have to be with a new missionary. On tuesday morning I got to do a session in the temple and we also slept in the temple on tuesday night. We then got here to  Guabo on wednesday. Pretty crazy but pretty awesome! It is pretty great to not have as much stress as before but I am so grateful for all that I could learn in the last 6 months. I am so grateful for the time I have left in the mission and I hope to be able to make the best of It. I know that this church is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. I am so grateful for the chance that I have to share that with other people here in Ecuador. Thank you all for all that you do for me. Thanks for all your Prayers and support. I love you all so much!! Have a great time there at the Cabin. 

Con mucho mucho Amor
